I’m a sucker for anything Martin Freeman does. First seeing him on the UK version of The Office, then later in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I instantly built a man-crush on the guy. Then, more recently, his portrayal of Dr. Watson on Steven Moffat’s absolutely brilliant Sherlock did nothing but confirm my man-crush on the wee Brit.
Naturally, I’m going to go see Swinging With the Finkels for the Freeman-factor alone. But what’ll keep me in the theatre is what looks to be a very charming look at reigniting a marriage that has gotten stale over the years. And besides, any movie with Jerry Stiller in it has to be decent, right?
Look for Swinging With the Finkels on August 26th in limited release.
